Questions? We’d love to hear from you.
Yes! We have a virtual option using some of our most useful tools that can host up to 70 people at one time and we are happy to run on-site workshops for larger groups.
We generally cap participation in our facilitated online workshops at 20, but occasionally have up to 30. The asynchronous workshops are open to as many as choose to take the course.
Yes! Systems thinking is what administrators must do every day and the Compass Tools create a visible way to organize and connect their thoughts and work!
Yes in the case of our virtual and onsite professional development but not so much in our online classes and courses. We are always open for suggestions and ways to make it work best for our participants.
Educators from all over the world! Compass Education has more than 25 facilitators working in more than 42 countries. Our online trainings are available in even the most remote areas and it is so fun to see who joins us!
We currently offer discounts for groups and cohorts. We also have very accessible pricing for educators in government or public schools. When we have facilitators in the area, we offer free trainings for community organizations that work with children in marginalized regions of the world.
Compass Education is grateful to our generous non-profit donors and sponsors who contribute to our operations costs, allowing us to keep prices low and provide scholarships and free trainings for educational organizations who would be served by the tools but do not have the resources to pay for training.
